    The restaurant opened 30 minutes earlier to welcome us prior to the beginning of an opera performance we had tickets for. Even though we had very little time to eat, the team ensured we had a pleasant experience and very tasty dishes. Definitely want to come again - with more time to enjoy the very nice ambience.

    Restaurant was a little cold as it is in a courtyard and it took the staff an entertaining 10 mins to sort out patio heaters. After that all was fine. Food was good. Would recommend for anyone looking for a good Milanese restaurant.

    Food was good but expensive (main course >EUR30 each; dessert >EUR15). Steak was good but potatoes were uninspiring and it needed another (green) vegetable for variety and slightly more sauce. Sea Bass was good and the vegetables were very good. Desserts were delicious but expensive. EUR4 cover charge seems a bit cheeky on top of already expensive food! Great venue.

    The setting in the courtyard is sensational; the barman crushing ice with a blender less so. Somehow the milanese crowd gives it a wide berth:we were the only locals, on a quest to find a good costoletta alla milanese, or orecchia d'elefante. The costoletta was barely ok; the chosen wine not available... Trust the milanesi

    Pleasant surroundings, something of an oasis in the bustle of the city, professional but friendly service.

About the restaurant

MILANESE - Nel cuore di Milano, a pochi passi dalla Scala, il ristorante Don Lisander si chiama così per il soprannome dato a Alessandro Manzoni. La raccolta sala è allestita nell’ex cappella del settecentesco Palazzo Trivulzio, che si amplia d’estate grazie al suggestivo patio.

CUCINA LOMBARDA - I menù si basano sulla cucina lombarda e regionale, in base a un’attentissima scelta di qualità e stagionalità. Si possono gustare il risotto alla milanese, i salumi della Val Tidone, il pesce freschissimo, e, nei mesi invernali, una ricca “cazzoeula”.

FATTO IN CASA - A disposizione poi numerose paste freschissime fatte in casa, oltre ai dolci anch’essi casalinghi. Ricca e nobile anche la cantina dei vini che offre le più grandi annate dei migliori produttori italiani.
